Every once in a while, I deviate from the normal “domestic” agenda here on the blog. Today is one of those days. Let’s talk about beauty products! And you know what, maybe it’s not that much of a deviation at all, right? What domestic superhero doesn’t deserve to be pampered now and again, right?!
Did you know that typical beauty, skincare, and makeup products expose you to hundreds of chemicals on a daily basis? It may come as a shocker to find out that the products we rely on every day can cause serious health hazards due to these chemicals. Many research studies suggest that chemicals in beauty products can cause neurological damage as well as cancer.
Since the skin is the largest organ of the human body, just imagine how many chemicals it can absorb on a day to day basis. If that sounds terrifying, it’s time to make a change.
Here are eight reasons why organic cosmetic products are so much better than their counterparts.
They Protect You from the Sun
The three major ingredients usually found in organic cosmetic and beauty products include zinc oxide, titanium oxide, and iron oxide. These offer natural protection from sun damage and prevent the skin from aging. They also help decrease the risk of skin cancer. Aside from these benefits, titanium oxide also gives you ultraviolet protection with its SPF 15. Zinc Oxide, on the other hand, provides sun protection from UVA rays and UVB rays. Iron oxide provides UV protection on top of giving the eye shadows and mineral foundations their unique hues.
They Heal and Repair Your Skin
Many women use beauty and cosmetic products to create a layer on their faces. They use moisturizers, organic eye serums, foundations, blush, primer, and the list goes on. Just imagine for a second how many chemicals each of these products boasts. Now imagine all of these chemicals being absorbed by your skin into the body. This is why you may often come across skin breakouts the next morning.
If you can’t listen to what skincare experts have to say about synthetic products, just listen to what your body is saying. It sends you clear signals when you are mistreating it. When you use organic beauty products, your skin feels natural and much more balanced. There are also no breakouts the next morning, a way for your body to show you that everything is going fine.
A key point of organic beauty products is that you do not have to worry about breakouts and minor side effects because these products are free of chemicals and harmful additives. The ingredients in them are also grown without artificial fertilizers and pesticides.
They Give You Peace of Mind
There is no regulatory authority that strictly demands beauty product manufacturers to list all of the ingredients on their product labels. This gives them the freedom to hide away many ingredients from the label, leaving you with no information on how much damage they cause you.
With organic skincare products, you’ll always have this peace of mind because you’ll know that nothing harmful is being used to make them. When all-natural things are absorbed by your skin, it is usually a good thing for your health and wellbeing.
So next time you are out shopping for makeup, skincare, and beauty products, look for all-natural and organic products over synthetic products.
